What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price! We were upgrading the desk at work and looking for a larger mountable monitor. We didn't use the original stand it came with, so I can't describe the quality of that. Everything is crisp, clear and it hasn't given me any issues so far. I did have to get used to such a large screen at the desk, so I found myself adjusting screen back and forth to get it more comfortable to do work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity. Broke down and purchased this LB monitor after using my old Phillips monitor for eighteen years. Of course, the difference is amazing. I should have purchased one size smaller, but this works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Innaccurate Specs I love LG and have moved to using their products in a lot of home applications - Monitors, TVs, wireless headphones, cellphone - but my experience with this monitor is a bit irritating. I considered several computer monitors in this price range, and ultimately decided on the LG as it lists the panel as "70hz" at "1920x1080p" - which it is not, there is no way to set any refresh rate besides 59hz or 60hz. Even with the drivers installed. I sent an email to LG support and basically got a completely tone deaf denial that they had any responsibility for the MARKETED SPECIFICATION being a bald faced lie, and offered absolutely no resolution or support. While I love most of LG, their display division seems skeezy as heck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice new screen! I have been wanting a second screen for working with music production. This was an excellent choice. The additional screen real estate allows me to work on the mix while working with instruments and plugins on a second screen.The display is crisp and clean and really does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Monitor I was looking for a new monitor and this one caught my eye. The color on the display was excellent. I am new to LG products. I like the slim lines and at first thought the size would be too big for my space. Although it is bigger than the old monitor, it fits perfectly. I had no difficulty connecting it to my desktop. I am extremely pleased with my purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture Compared to the other monitors that I looked at and was considering, the LG stood out as being the best. Price was a secondary factor
